Vote for MickaCoo's Gypsy & Milkshake Mike!

When baby homing pigeon Gypsy was facing euthanasia at an animal shelter, MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue saved her. She needed supportive and foster care to recover and she has blossomed into a beautiful married pigeon lady. Her mate, a huge king pigeon named Milkshake Mike (because he trembled with fear in his shelter cage) was also facing death before he became a MickaCoo foster pigeon. Now, they have each other and you can see how devoted each is to the other. They want to live. They deserve compassion. And your help is what allows MickaCoo to provide it when no one else will.

Please help MickaCoo Pigeon & Dove Rescue continue this work for the birds that are timing out at shelters and still need to be rescued. 

Vote for Gypsy & Milkshake Mike in GlobalGiving's Photo Contest and encourage your friends and family to vote too! (One vote per person, voting ends 8/15). MickaCoo could win a much-needed $1000 and extra promotion from GlobalGiving!
